Nuehuevo York

Yesterday I had a dumb idea for a breakfast restaurant that would be based in New York City, so today I took a few minutes to mock up a logo for it. Decided on the color because of it's similarity to an egg yolk, obviously. And Picked Gotham for the font mainly for the obviousness of the New York connection.

A Mom and her Cub

Had some extra time today so I played around more with adding illustration into real scenes. I pulled this old portrait I shot a few years ago of one of my friends and her son to use as the bass.

Break in Case of Emergency

Yesterday, the producer who sits next to me at this freelance gig brought in his dog. Given all the attention dogs get whenever they are brought in to any ad agency, it made me feel bad for people who work in industries that don't allow them at the office. This was the solution I came up with.

Sneak Peak

Currently working on two different projects, one has to stay hidden for now, but I can give a sneak peak of the second. It's something that's been floating around in my head for the past few years. Finally got the encouragement from someone to mock it up even though it never sold through.

Frogs and Gretas

A few months ago I bought an iPad Pro. I liked the appeal of being able to draw directly onto a screen instead of via a Wacom tablet and monitor.

Over the past few months I started out just doing straight illustration, but I've always liked the idea of combining illustration with photos.

This is something I threw together tonight. It's a photo of my friend Greta that I took earlier in the month while I was in Atlanta.

It's nothing crazy, I figured I'd start small and work my way up to more advanced stuff. I want to get more conceptual too obviously. Anyway, thank you for taking a look.

Don’t be Jelly

Sometimes dumb things pop into my head, like the idea of a jealous peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Figured I'd go ahead and make it.
